woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the northeast with sandy. when we started with a big calendar ticking down the job reports and the one right before the election, there was some analysis this would be big. it's not. >> one thing that's sort of odd and interesting about this is the three states with the worst unemployment levels, california, nevada and new jersey are solidly democratic. the whole republican argument that this administration has made things worse clearly is not working in those states where things are, in fact, the worst. in other states like nebraska, kansas, north dakota where there's extremely low employment because of shale gas and agriculture, republicans are winning. it's an interesting dynamic in the election in that respect. the real challenge for any new administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and me
the credit. >> let me talk to you a little bit about speaking of getting credit, the response to sandy. part of the president -- and gentlemen, you can all take a look, as well as folks at home. president obama went to fema and washington, d.c. this morning. and this is what he had to say regarding the response to sandy. let's play it. >> leaders of different political parties working together to fix what is broken. [ applause ] now it's a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough times are, we're all in this together. we rise or fall as one nation and as one people. >> if we can pull up the marist poll, the nbc "wall street journal," the president's response to sandy. 73% approve in ohio. 70% out of florida. marc caputo, let me bring you in because 70% of the people in the home state of yours approve of his handling. will that have an impact on perhaps not early voter, but on tuesday those who look back and may have heard comments from the republican primary that were made by governor romney regarding fema. we know fema is still popular in that state for the obvious
